We must reiterate that any person found video/audio recording the panels or with said recordings will be removed from the convention, and the recording deleted from their device. This includes mobile devices such as phones. Should any illegal recordings be found on any person, or devices, or social media accounts controlled by said person, then that person forfeits the right to continue to attend that convention and any future conventions without any financial recompense or refund for any purchases made. For the avoidance of doubt a lifetime ban will be instigated and all purchases will be cancelled with no right to refund.
The rule of no videos allows the guest to reply freely to your questions without fear of their comments being replayed on the internet.
Any purchase of passes and extras implies that the buyer and/or the attendee accept and agree to the terms and conditions listed above.
